Another NEW song available for streaming!!!


C-C-Cool Beans!!!
We've posted another new song from the upcoming new album!


"Far Too Long", another brand new song from the progressive/power metal act KATAGORY V, can be streamed using the ReverbNation TuneWidget below. The track will appear on the band's upcoming fifth album, "Resurrect The Insurgence", to be released in 2012.

Commented KATAGORY V bassist Dustin Mitchell: "We know it has been rather quiet in the KATAGORY V camp, and many have been wondering when the newalbum will be released, but rest assured we are still fighting the good fight, and the new album will be delivered in good time. However, it has been difficult to nail down a release date in the current state of the industry with the constant changes abound. Nevertheless, we are still alive!

"A few months back we uploaded a new song from the upcoming album, 'Resurrect The Insurgence', which was completed earlier this year with the help of producer Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69, ANGRA, PRIMAL FEAR), and felt it was time to throw out another musical morsel from the new album out there for everyone to testdrive.

"Lyrically, 'Far Too Long' is about the ending of a very long relationship with someone, the ripple effect that it causes, the expectations from those around you, and the changes that need to be overcome. This song was written four years ago, and only recently, became self-prophesying for myself, which I found to be rather ironic.

"Musically, this song is a very straight ahead, very melancholy track with a bit of an AOR approach. Dennis and I joked that this would be our radio hit if such a thing existed for the band, or in general these days, as it is by far the most accessible song on the album. It has many of the classic KATAGORY V progressive trademarks with the phrasings and structures, however, with a lot more emphasis on melody and hook. Once again, our influences are very apparent here in this song and we are very proud of how this turned out. It musically and emotionally compliments the lyrical content.

"We picked this next song to show the fans another side of the band, as well as the more melodic direction we are taking with the new album. We feel that the production and performance of this song highlights the album as a whole."

"Resurrect The Insurgence" is the first KATAGORY V album to be recorded, produced, and engineered by Mitchell, who is the sole remaining original member in the band.

KATAGORY V's last album, "Hymns Of Dissension", was released in September 2007 in Europe through Burning Star Records and in October 2007 in the U.S. on Nightmare Records.
well done! Yes, the influences (FW, Qryche etc...) are obvious, but I love both those bands (and the era the influences come from), so thumbs up!

Let's see how the next of the album will turn out.

I will not compare to the other albums right now. I will wait for the CD to come out and then, although I do hold the other albums in pretty high regard, and I believe they will be difficult to surpass!
